4th Grade Popsicle Bridges

09-28-2018School Happenings

4th grade students completed the "Popsicle Bridge" lesson exploring how engineering has impacted the development of bridges over time. Students worked in teams of "engineers" to design and build their own bridge out of glue and no more than 200 popsicle sticks.

Bridges must have a span of at least 14 inches and be able to hold a five pound weight and then a 20 pound weight. Students are encouraged to be frugal, and use the fewest number of popsicle sticks while still achieving their goals.
